DON DEAL:Packers Secure Second-Year Cornerback…

The Green Bay Packers have reportedly signed cornerback Gemon Green, just a few weeks prior to the 2024 NFL Draft.’s Bill Huber reported on Wednesday, April 10 that the Packers signed Green.

“According to a source, Green recently was cleared following shoulder surgery,” Huber wrote. “His workout in Green Bay was his first opportunity since being healthy, and he obviously did well enough to merit a longer look.”

While it’s not a blockbuster signing, it’s the first notable move the Packers have made since signing veteran kicker Greg Joseph to compete with Anders Carlson in training camp.

Packers fans have their full attention on the upcoming draft, but general manager Brian Gutekunst continues to make moves around the fringes
Coming out of DeSoto, Texas, Green was a 3-star high school recruit back in 2018. He had dozens of scholarship offers, including ones from top programs like Oregon, Texas, and Oklahoma.
Instead, Green decided to head up to the midwest to play for the Michigan Wolverines. It took him some time to crack the starting lineup, but stayed the course without transferring and reaped the benefits by the end of his college career.
Green did not see action as a true freshman, then played a special teams role as a sophomore. He became a starting cornerback as a junior in 2020, and by the time he went pro in 2020 he left the Wolverines with 24 career starts and an All-Big Ten honorable selection in 2022.

After falling just short of a national title, Green declared for the 2023 NFL Draft. He had solid size at 6’1″ and 183 pounds, and posted a modest Relative Athletic Score (RAS) at 6.64 out of 10
